Hello , everyone .
Welcome back to my channel .
Today we are doing a little makeover in my formal dining and living room .
Here's what this space currently looks like .
So plain and boring .
I do want to add some sort of trim work in this area and do an accent wall , add some color .
But for now we are just some new furniture and the core first thing is moving a rug under this dining table .
This table was gifted to us .
So it's one of a few pieces that we still have from our old house .
I'm going to move this neutral rug to the other side .
This rug is from Wayfair and it's a really affordable one .
I absolutely love it .
If you see my Christmas decorating videos , you might remember this table that I got from Target .
I didn't love the quality of it .
So I am replacing it with this one also from Target .
I don't want a sideboard in here .
I had one and I sold it .
So this one was perfect and sleek , just like I wanted , I decided to sell this black console and replace it with something else you will see in the next few clips .
I've never been so excited to share a rug with you guys .
The quality , the tones and everything about this one .
I'm obsessed with .
It's from the Angela Rose and Lioy collab .
It's the blake oatmeal and spice rug .
It's neutral but also moody just like I wanted .
And the fringe detail on the ends is a bonus .
These chairs are from IKEA .
Also from our old house .
I did have a sofa in here that I sold .
I would like to get one for the space but not any time soon because we rarely sit in here .
So I'm keeping these chairs here for now .
This is the new console table that I purchased .
It's from Target as well .
I got this one specifically because I wanted to add these beautiful Ottomans underneath it .
Since I sold the sofa , I wanted to have extra seating for when we have family over .
And I would love to do this look by my front door , but the area is so slim even with the table , it sticks out too far .
So I'm doing it here and creating a formal sitting area .
I've had this coffee table for a while now .
It's from the studio mcgee collection at Target .
Honestly , I would say stay away from any of the natural wood tone furniture from her collection because this is the tone that you will get .
Now I made it work because I got a warmer rug , but it's not my favorite color and I only kept it because I love the design .
I added this sponge but I didn't like it .
Something was off .
So I removed it .
I just left it on this wall for now .
Moving on to my favorite part , adding Decor and bringing the space to life .
I removed this mirror and replaced it with this painting .
I'm sure you guys have all seen it .
I loved the moody tones that it has .
This is something that I really want to incorporate into my home and I felt like it was fitting for all seasons as well .
When I'm hanging things alone , I like to prop it on a stack of books or boxes so that I can step back and visually see if I like the placement or not .
This method never fails me .
Next to this painting .
I really wanted to add lighting .
I didn't add light fixture above the dining table in this video because I could not decide on one , but I still need more light and ambiance to this dining room .
So these wall sconces were perfect to elevate this painting .
They are from Amazon .
I won't be hot wiring them because I don't know how to .
And this method is a lot easier .
I'll be using rechargeable light bulbs to charge them .
You just need to screw them into a lamp that's plugged in and to control them .
You have remote and buttons on the bulbs as well since I don't have the right wall to add a entryway table near the front door .
I'm creating that here .
I asked you guys a few months ago , where should I put this mirror ?
And a lot of you guys said I should put it here .
And I'm glad I did .
This brass arch mirror is from Hobby Lobby .
We had a few days of gloomy weather here in Georgia and once that cleared up I was able to start adding my decor .
This lamp is from Kirkland's .
It matches the colors I have in this area perfectly .
And next to that , I added a coffee table book with a decorative object on top and a candlestick holder as well .
On the other side , I added this painting I found at Hobby Lobby and the studio and threshold arrangement .
This one is from an older collection .
She does have similar ones in her new collection , but honestly , it's not as great as this one for the console table in the dining room .
I kept it pretty simple with this Amazon bookstand .
I love the amber interiors book .
I like to flip to a page that's cohesive with the room .
On the other side , I added another of my favorite books , an old vase that I have and these bushes that I got from Hobby Lobby .
This wall is the first thing that you see when you walk into our home .
So for this empty corner , I'm adding a tall olive tree this planter is from Target .
The tree is from Amazon and to fill the pot .
I use rocks to hold it in place because the tree was not straight .
It just would not stand up .
And I use Spanish moss from Hobby Lobby to top it off to add the perfect finishing touch to this area .
I'm adding handcrafted custom design curtains by Karraker .
Tara is an online custom design curtain store .
I worked with their design team to customize the perfect curtains for our home .
I chose a double pinch pleat header and the curtains come with these plastic clips attached to hang them .
I purchased pinch pleat curtain rings from Amazon .
The fabric that I chose is the Harris linen blend and the color is white .
Their design team also recommended that I add a lining for privacy and room darkening .
So we went with a white lining as for measurements .
I sent them my window measurements and how tall my ceiling was .
And I told them the look that I was going for which was a heavy luxurious pleated look .
Instead of having two panels on each window , I added four panels to each window .
This is the next morning .
I wanted to show you guys how beautiful these curtains look .
I get so many compliments on them and I can't recommend them enough .
So thank you to Car Tara for gifting me these handcrafted custom curtains .
I will leave the link to Carra's website and all the information down below for you guys .
I decided to add a few more decor items that morning as well .
The pot is from M and Co and the Bush is from Hobby Lobby .
I had to trim it because it would not sit straight with the stem bent and I just used foam to hold everything and keep its original shape that I loved .
I hope you guys enjoyed this video and spending time with me .
